Method: The Hut Project have devised a scoring system to rate the cultural value of artists CVs and have scored the CV of every Limoncello artist. A factor has been determined to scale The Hut Project’s score to the average price of a work by The Hut Project. This factor has been used to multiply the score of each Limoncello artist, generating a set of financial values. The financial difference between The Hut Project and each artist has been calculated. That amount of money has been spent on a material that The Hut Project have chosen to represent the conceptual difference between the work of themselves and each artist.
